To the family and friends of Pfc. Cody S. Calavan:
It has truly been my honor to sign Cody's guest book these past few years. Unfortunately, due to complications from my Multiple Sclerosis, this may be the last message I'm able to write. Please forgive me and know that Cody will always be remembered in my home.
With love and respect ~ Peggy

I was Calavan's squad leader in Iraq. Had I not been wounded 3 days earlier I probably would have been riding alongside him on the 29th. My last memory of Cody was him coming to check on me before they sent me off to Baghdad after I had been wounded. His concern was sincere and I was confident that he would be able to pick up the slack in my absence. As his squad leader it was my job to make him the best Marine that he could be. Those efforts payed dividends once we arrived in Ramadi and began doing our jobs. On one particular occasion during a gunfight on April 10, 2004 Cody actually surpassed me in tactical and strategic thinking by moving his machine gun and gun crew to the top of a near by building. This decision ultimately enabled him to suppress the enemy fire long enough to allow the pinned-down Marines of 2nd platoon to seek cover in near by buildings. Marines are trained to make those types of high stress, split second decisions and Cody made them with no hesitation. I saw the potential in him the day that he arrived in Echo Company. He was smart, witty and confident. Truly one of the best Marines that I served with. I would like to thank the Calavan's for giving me the opportunity to know Cody. Of all of the men that we lost over there He has the closest. All these years later I still think about him and am thankful that I had the opportunity know and serve alongside him.

I will be eternally grateful to PFC Cody Calavan for his service to this nation.
